?STREAK ENDS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Stork yes, streak no. Zack Greinke's (GREHN'-keez) shutout pitching streak ends at 45 2-3 innings. He had been slated to start Friday as the Dodgers faced the Mets in New York. But Greinke flew home to Los Angeles Thursday night, as his wife was about to give birth. They welcomed little Bode Nicholas into the family. Greinke rejoined the team over the weekend. His streak ended yesterday when the Mets scratched out a run in the third. Greinke says his trip home "wasn't as distracting as you would think." The Mets went on to beat the Dodgers 3-2 in 10 innings.

NEWBORNS-HUNTING/FISHING LICENSE

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- What to get a newborn? How about a lifetime of hunting and fishing, at least in New Hampshire. Officials of the state Fish and Game Department say it's the best baby gift ever for the outdoors family. The lifetime license costs 300 bucks plus a fee of $4.50. The buyer gets a certificate to present to the new parents. Once the child turns 16, the certificate can be redeemed for a lifetime license. The current annual license fee is $46.

MINT RESEARCH-MSU

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- It's minty fresh, as far as research goes. A Michigan State University researcher is heading a $5 million study of the genetic structure of the mint family of plants. Mints include the spices basil, oregano, rosemary and thyme. They also include spearmint and peppermint. Lead researcher Robin Buell says relatively little is known about mints. The researchers hope the study will lead to the development of everything from new medicines to fragrances. The study is funded by the National Science Foundation.

KANSAS CITY-TINY HOUSES

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- It would be a tiny village, of tiny houses. A nonprofit group wants to build a village of itty-bitty homes in Kansas City, Missouri. City planning officials want to hear more from the Tiny Houses Collective. The Kansas City Star reports the group is looking at building houses between 240- and 350-square feet in a 12-unit village. The development would include a common building for use as a kitchen or laundry room. City Planner Patty Noll calls the idea an interesting concept.
